        DMC-DVI

        DVI/VGA Input Card for DM® Switchers

        Provides a single DVI-I input for any DigitalMedia™ Switcher with modular plug-in input card slots.

        DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration ToolThe DMC-DVI is an input card designed for use with any card-based Crestron® DigitalMedia™ Switcher. It provides one DVI-I type input, with a complementary analog stereo audio input and HDMI® pass-through output. A USB HID port is also provided. The DVI-I input allows for the connection of a single-link DVI digital video source or an analog VGA, RGB, or component video source.[1] It handles computer resolutions up to WUXGA 1920x1200, as well as HD video up to 1080p60. Analog video signals are converted to digital using high-quality 30 bit sampling.

        Audio Embedding

        Via its balanced analog audio input, the DMC-DVI allows a stereo line-level signal to be converted to 24-bit digital and combined with the digital video signal for distribution over the DigitalMedia network.

        HDMI® Pass-Through

        Every DM® switcher input card includes an HDMI output port, which can be used to pass the audio and video input signals through to a local audio processor or video monitor, or to feed a second DM switcher for output expansion purposes.

        USB Signal Extension

        Built-in USB HID signal routing allows a connected computer (or other USB HID-compliant host) to be controlled by a mouse and/or keyboard located at a presentation lectern, conference table, or some other remote location. Additional USB devices of virtually any type can be supported using Crestron USB over Ethernet Extenders (USB-EXT-DM) [2].

        Standalone DVI/VGA to HDMI Converter

        In addition to its use as an input card for DM switchers, the DMC-DVI may also be used with the DMCI DigitalMedia Card Interface [3] to provide a handy problem-solving tool with many useful functions. It can be used to merge DVI digital video and analog stereo audio into a single HDMI output, and to extend a USB HID mouse/keyboard signal over Ethernet. It can also be used to detect a device’s video information, manage its EDID, and assess its HDCP capabilities.

        Digital Upgrade for Legacy Systems

        Whether installed in a DM switcher or DMCI, the DMC-DVI card affords a digital upgrade for analog-based systems like Crestron MPS and QuickMedia®. A simple HD15 VGA cable and balanced stereo audio cable connected between the output of an MPS system and the input of the DMC-DVI allows every RGB, component, S-Video, composite video, and audio input on the MPS to be converted to HDMI and DigitalMedia.[1]

        To configure a DM switcher complete with input and output cards, cables, and other peripherals, please use the online DigitalMedia Switcher Configuration Tool.

        Please refer to the DigitalMedia Resources Webpage at http://www.crestron.com/dmresources/ for additional design tools and reference documents.
